(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor)

Dhaka: On September 15, the AirAsia Aviation Group celebrated its return to operations at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4. AirAsia Aviation Group Limited (AAAGL) is the holding company of Capital A's airline group.

The first AirAsia flight returning to Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4 (T4) was AirAsia flight AK703 from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Airbus A330-300, which was full, departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) at 07:37 and landed in Singapore at 08:24.

According to reports, the return flight, AK702, departed from T4 at 10:26 and arrived in Kuala Lumpur at 11:11.

AirAsia Group is the largest foreign airline group by capacity in Singapore, with more than 12 per cent of the total passengers passing through Changi Airport terminals, and contributing 51 per cent of T4's overall seat capacity.

The group says returning to T4 will allow it to add more services to meet the strong demand and enable them to return to full recovery to pre-Covid frequency levels soon.

Hosting festivities at the airport was Capital A CEO Tony Fernandes, who said the airline is currently operating 168 flights weekly to 12 destinations across Asia, which is about 60 per cent of its pre-Covid flying.

He is hopeful that by the end of the year, AirAsia will be at 100 per cent with more flights and the use of more, larger A330 widebody aircraft.

From September 22, AirAsia Malaysia has been operating 120 weekly flights from Singapore Changi Airport. AirAsia Indonesia flies 34 flights weekly on two routes, AirAsia Thailand flies 24 weekly on two routes, and AirAsia Philippines has four flights weekly on one route.
